Some big news has just arrived for those wanting the latest lineup information on next year's Bal en Blanc party. Playground Productions, the organizers of Bal en Blanc, revealed the 3 big headliners for the 20th edition of Bal en Blanc for 2014. Hardwell, Carl Cox, and New World Punx have all been named as the big 3 headlining acts that will be leading the way for each stage on Sunday, April 20th. What's also interesting is that next year's Bal en Blanc festivities will have 3 big stages which will appeal to a much broader crowd.
It's no surprise that Hardwell, the new #1 DJ as voted by the DJ Mag poll will be the head honcho over at Arena 1, while the legendary Carl Cox will be bringing his "Carl Cox and Friends" party over to Arena 2. It's been a while since the iconic Carl Cox has graced Montreal with his presence, so it's with little doubt that his booking will please the huge number of Montreal underground fans. Arena 3, which I will dub the trance stage will have the New World Punx, the collaborative group between Ferry Corsten and Markus Schulz, as the big headlining act. Traditionally Armin Van Buuren was always the go-to name to head the trance stage in the past, so leading with NWP is an interesting choice. You've got to remember that Armin Van Buuren will be in Toronto for his massive Armin Only concert the night before, so the likelihood of Armin of being booked for Bal en Blanc are still good.
Tickets will go on sale on December 14th at noon and general admission tickets will start at $99 for the first 1,000 sold (+$49 for a VIP upgrade). Click here for more information.
